Quotes of the Day: Why Socialism Fails

1. Socialize the individual's surplus and you socialize his spirit and creativeness; you cannot paint the Mona Lisa by assigning one dab of paint to a thousand painters.

~William F. Buckley, Jr.

2. Everything that is really great and insipiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.

~Albert Einstein

Great Einstein quote, but its use for this subject is highly inappropriate, primarily due to the fact that Einstein was a socialist. Check out his May 1949 article, "Why Socialism?" in Monthly Review.
